A portrait of Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas Solórzano´s personal journey during his third presidential campaign. It captures a moment in contemporary history told from the perspective and experiences of a political group that was defeated, a fundamental portion of Mexican history that rarely reaches an audience because it wasn´t written by the victors. This documentary doesn´t show scandal, or corruption, or a redemptive act; rather, it shows how politics operate at the highest levels in Mexico and reveals the human side of a popular leader. It´s like being backstage in the production of an unimaginable play.
